The approach is to teach you from start to finish how to design and select materials, edit and sequence imagery, and to make a book that furthers the narrative content of your work.  You will be introduced to a structure a day, learn how to make a mockup, and have plenty of studio time to work on your own version.   This course will set you up to work confidently at your studio in four basic structures that are the foundation of bookbinding.   

This is an all levels class.  The beginner will have enough support to dive into the book making process.  More advanced bookbinders will have the opportunity to experiment with these structures with ample studio time to experiment and discover new possibilities.  All students will need to have photographic or print based material that has a narrative, visual or storyline that is in development.  We will be working on editing, sequencing and pacing of these images in the book form.  You will be asked to bring this content to class already printed, in multiples and different sizes so you have enough to work with throughout the week.   Cone Editions will also provide on-site and in class printing on two types of paper. Other paper can be purchased as in stock. You will need to be prepared to bring basic bookbinding supplies with you to this workshop.  A class list of supplies to bring with you will be provided.
